Interesting W. Pond Radiused Rabbet Plane. .
This looks like a standard small bench smoother but the sole has been relieved to allow it to be used as a rabbet plane in either the right or left hand direction. Further more, the sole has been radiused to enable it to work these rabbets around corners. I assume it's a coach maker's plane. The plane has an even, honest patina, including the relieved area long the sole which I believe is factory-original. The blade is long and clean and has no damage. It's a small plane measuring 8.5in long with a 1 3/8in wide double iron. It's a nice plane by this New Haven, CT maker.

Most Unusual 60 Degree Single-Iron Coffin Smoother.
This is the highest angle bench plane I've come across. It's marked H.C. Draper at the toe, a name I can't find in either the British or American planemakers books. It holds a nice A. Howland 2 1/4in wide single iron. The iron has no pitting and is quite sharp. I've never used a plane with this high of an attack angle so I quickly honed it and gave it a whirl. It worked well, but there's a downside to that ultra-high angle.. It makes it really hard to push. The plane is clean and crisp with a freshly flattened sole. The plane once held a double iron- there was a groove in the bed to accept the cap iron's nut. It's been filled and the bed lined with a thin piece of leather. The plane measures 6.5in overall. It's an interesting plane for sure.

This stout bevel-edge chisel measure s12.5in long overall. It has a steel hooped handle in near perfect condition. The blade has a light mark and discoloration and pitting covering the front.

Nice Medium Size Hewing Hatchet.
This is a rarity- a true single-bevel hewing hatchet in usable condition. I'm always on the lookout for these but almost all I see are either in terrible condition or have been ground to a knife edge by a well-meaning former owner. This one has a freshly ground bevel that needs a final fine grind and honing to have it working. The back has been cleaned up and the area closest the bevel is clean and polished. It is 15in long overall and the head weighs in at 3lbs. It's a bit on the big size for me to use one-handed for long periods, but bigger guys might feel right at home with it. The back of the blade is slightly crowned across its width, and the as you'd hope to see in a hewing hatchet. It should be a great worker once it's had its final honing.

Usable 12in Broad Axe.
This is a big 8lb 12in wide broad axe made by CM Taylor. It's one of the few usable broad axes I've come across. The handle is canted to the left for use by a right-handed user. The axe retains its original single bevel. It has a laminated blade with a clear delineation between tool steel and the softer steel. The working area of the back is remarkably clean, despite some discoloration. There is some very light pinprick pitting here and there, but it's among the cleanest axes of this type I've ever come across. The handle is nearly perfect- tight and free of damage. It's a remarkable edge tool and would be a fine worker.

The plane was marked Sims but also has the Atkin and Son logo. Goodman mentions that Atkin may have acquired the Sims name in order to take advantage of the prestige of a "London made" plane. The plane is crisp and clean with minimal wear. The mouth is super tight. The cabinet pitch blade has zero pitting and almost all of its original length. The bevel has a small ding that will need a quick stop at the grinding wheel to rectify. Otherwise it's a top condition plane with a very useful small profile.

The profile it leaves is 5/8in wide and about 3/16in deep, a nice way to break the edge of a table top, shelf, drawer front, etc. It's also an easy plane to use with its nice wide fence to help keep it at the proper spring angle. It's a great plane to start with.

Exceptional Double-Iron 3/8in Quirk Ogee and Bevel Molder .
This plane cuts an especially small version of the ubiquitous quirk bevel and ogee molding measuring 3.4in wide by 3/8in deep. It was made by J. Davison in Montreal. The plane is beautifully made and well designed. It uses two blades- one to cut the bevel, the other to cut the ogee. The benefit here is that the bevel portion takes most of the wear while in use. Having a separate blade for it makes sharpening much easier if you are running a lot of moldings. Instead of reshaping a single wide blade each time, you only need to concentrate on the simple bevel blade. It's a great design and well-executed. It's in excellent condition with minimal wear and two nice clean blades. It's an exceptional plane with a very desirable smaller profile.

Even more rare, this plane is usable! Most of the multi-bead planes I see are warped or the boxing has come out of line in some way- not this one. The solid boxed sole is completely straight and the blade is ground to match. The plane body rates as very good with only minor wear and a nice even, honest paina. The blade is bedded at cabinet pitch and is in excellent condition. The only flaw is that the original beech wedge has been replaced with a rosewood wedge at some point. It's a scarce profile to find in usable condition.

Union no. 7 Jointer Plane.
This plane was made in New Britain by the Union Mfg. Co., one of Stanley's few competitors in the metallic bench plane game at the start of the 20th century. The plane mimics a Stanley Bailey in almost every way except for the twister lateral and no frog adjusting screw, both Stanley patented designs. The plane is a decent worker, but not the prettiest. The sides and sole are discolored. The knob and tote were painted and the tote has a truncated horn. None of these will affect use, and could certainly be repaired if you choose. The upside is the japanning is near 100%. The blade is original, and Marked with the Union logo. It's a typical Union blade which was about twice as thick as a Stanley OEM blade. The adjusters work fine and the plane should work well.

Stanley SW Era no. 7 Jointer Plane.
This plane was made during the late 1920s/early 1930s Sweetheart era. It defies the type study a bit. According to the flow chart it's a type 15, but it has features of previous types as well- high knob, large adjuster wheel, blank lever ca, no rib at heel and toe, raised ring to hold the tote. It does have remnants of the rare orange paint on the frog. It's further evidence that Stanley didn't use the type study when they made these plane. Regardless of when it was made exactly, it's a decent user jointer. The sides and sole are clean and honest with some patina but no ruse. The original japanning is maybe 90% and a bit grungy. The rosewood tote is remarkable for tis bold sapwood streak, and the small chip missing from the top.somehow it didn't crack all the way through and remains quite strong still. The adjusters work fine. The blade has some small amount of pitting on the back that you can clearly see in the photo. I think I have a spare 2 3/8in blade to include if you want it.

It was made for the New York hardware dealer Hammacher Schlemmer. The saw is sharp and ready to work. I've tested it in soft and hardwoods and it performs perfectly- cutting fast and sticking to a line. The saw has 6PPI. The plate has a stain on the front, but the etch is crisp and clear. The apple handle is gorgeous and has no flaws at all. It's a great working saw in fantastic shape.

*Freshly Sharpened* 26in 5 Point Rip Saw.
This saw was made for the Fulton Tool Co. by C.E. Jennings. It was likely made in the very late 19th or early 20th century. The saw is 26in long, 2 1/4in deep at the toe, and 5PPI. It is freshly sharpened and works very well. It's an aggressive 5 point saw that tears through soft and hardwoods. While sawing some 4/4 spruce I was easily able to cut more than 1in/stroke while leaving a nice clean kerf behind. it tracks well and saws easily. The handle is beech. It has no damage. The plate is dark with an even, honest patina. The Fulton etch is clear and crisp, if not very bright. It's marked The Spring Steel Saw, Thin Back, Hand Made, Hand Filed, Hand Set. It's a great user rip saw to put to work right out of the box.

*Freshly Sharpened* Atkins 22in Extra-Fine Crosscut Panel Saw.
This is a 22in 12PPI fine toothed crosscut saw for working very thin stock and precise finish crosscuts. The saw is in excellent working order and has been freshly sharpened. It cuts extremely well, cutting very fast and accurate for its high tooth count. The plate is dead straight and clean. It's etch is light, as are most Atkins etches. The model number is not legible but I'm almost positive it's a no. 53. The embossed apple handle is in excellent condition with no damage to the horns, almost all of the original finish, and almost all original nickel on the hardware. There's a small check on one side near the medallion but that's the only flaw. It's an exceptional fine finish saw that will be in top working order right out of the box.

This is a Disston-made Jackson sash or tenon saw. The plate is 16in long, 3 3/4in deep, and 12PPI crosscut. It's freshly sharpened and ready to work, I've made test cuts with it it had and softwoods. It cuts cleanly and smoothly starting easily and tracking a line accurately, even in my hands. It's clean and respectable. There is some scattered pitting on the front and back, and the beech handle does have a repaired check, but it's a working saw for someone who isn't interested in frills. I guarantee it will be a top quality worker right out of the box.

*Freshly Sharpened* WM&C Holden-Patent Handsaw.
This saw was made by Wheeler, Madden, and Clemson and features Holden's patent handle. This design provided a thumb notch, similar to Disston's pistol-grop, to rest the left thumb in when in use. Unlike Disston's design this one is ambidextrous. The saw is a 26in 11PPI fine crosscut saw, a strange saw to have this handle design, which was usually reserved for rip saws. This isn't unheard of- I've found these handles on almost every saw plate length and configuration you can imagine. The saw is in ready-to-use condition. It's freshly sharpened and cuts beautifully leaving a nice clean kerf, and tracking a line perfectly. It's a nice saw to have for making extra fine finish crosscuts or for working very thin stock. There is no etch visible but the plate is clean and straight. It's a great working fine finish saw.

*Freshly Sharpened* 28in 5 Point Rip Saw.
This is a monster 5 point rip saw with a 28in plate 2 5/8in deep at the toe. It's marked with a hardware store logo but it's almost without doubt a Disston made saw.

It makes more than 1in/stroke and leaves nice curly shavings in its wake. If you need a saw to do a lot of ripping, this is it. It's an especially nice length for those of you with long arms- this one won't come out of the kerf. The plate is straight and clean with a somewhat faint etch.
